Necessary to work entire month you reach MRA to get supplement following month? 


Are federal employees required to work the entire month in which they reach their MRA dates in order to begin receiving the special retirement supplement in the following month?

For example, if Mary has 32 yrs and she turns 56 (MRA) Feb.15., and retires the next day, when would she be eligible to begin receiving the FERS supplement?

FERS annuities commence the first day of the month following separation, so in your example, Mary would become eligible for her FERS and FERS Retiree Supplement March 1. As always there are exceptions such as disability retirements commence the day after separation and they are not eligible for the supplement.
